 Eight Cadets from 1224 (Wharfedale) Squadron, Air Training Corps have completed the St. Johns Ambulance Youth First Aid course and been awarded their red first aid badges.

Sergeant Tom Hepworth, Corporals Daniel Chivers, Hannah Mayfield, Omar Shah and Sam Shaw and Cadets Beth Doherty, Aiden Holmes and Pearce Todd gained their first aid courses after completing the course run by Civilian Instructor Kjersti Moore.

During the course the cadets were instructed and assessed on various valuable lifesaving skills including CPR, primary surveying, secondary surveying, the recovery position and how to treat bleeding, choking and shock. 

Following successfully passing the course, Sgt Hepworth said 'I really enjoyed completing the first aid course and I learned lots of important life skills along the way!'
